I’m not sure, it looks quite wide & the picture frames seem larger than 35mm

Yes, that is indeed 70MM film.

That picture was taken when I was Head Projectionist at the Hall and that is indeed 70mm film on the rewind. I suspect we put it out for the benefit of the tour groups that came through the booth on a regular basis. The picture of the projectors shows #1 machine at the far left side of the frame. It was 35mm only, but the next three were Simplex 35/70mm projectors flanked by another 35mm only Simplex X-L in the #5 spot. The spotlights are Kliegal, and the machine at the right edge of the frame isn’t a spotlight but a Brenkert slide projector used for effects in the stage show.

I did the guided tour again in 2008, but this time the projection suite was not included, is the booth now out of bounds to the pulic ? The carrier bag on the bench was mine, I’d placed it there in order to take pictures, and then forgot all about it. I was outside when I realised this, but the lady kindlytook me back there, and left me there, so I was able to snoop around a bit more. Being a projectionist myself was not likely to do any damage.
